Registry System

The Verra Registry was launched in April 2020 and is the cornerstone for the implementation of Verra’s standards and programs. It facilitates the transparent listing of information on certified projects, issued and retired units, and enables the trading of units. The Verra Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system.

An active Verra Registry account is required for any entity wishing to register projects or issue, retire or transfer credits. Account applications may be submitted by clicking on the “Open New Account” button. Note that all registry account applicants will be subject to strict “Know-Your-Customer” background checks.

Verra Project Database

The Verra Project Database, which has acted as the central repository for all information and documentation relating to projects using Verra programs, has been replaced by the new Verra Registry. Going forward, all project and program documentation, together with information on project and jurisdictional proponents, VCU issuance and retirement, the AFOLU pooled buffer account and the jurisdictional pooled buffer account will be available on the new registry.
